Boulder, Colo. (AP) - The number of probable Swine Flu cases at the University of Colorado in Boulder has increased from just a handful to as many as 50.

University Spokesman Bronson Hilliard says 40 to 50 students have been tested for Influenza A, of which Swine Flu is a strain.

They haven't been tested for Swine Flu.

Hilliard says only the state can test for Swine Flu.

State health officials test people who are hospitalized, and CU isn't aware of any of the students who are in the hospital.

The University is not canceling any classes or imposing quarantines despite the illnesses.

CU officials are asking students to stay in their dorm rooms or apartments and not go to class.
